Crocus sell star of billions - in fact they have it on sale at the moment.  I think it is quite a new one though.

I would like to add a dark red sedum to my borders - does anyone know a good one?

Have some pink ones that are doing well, so I think they like my conditions

Have a great meetup KEF &OL (?and someone else i've missed) .  This world is getting less virtual everyday - which considering we are flung to the four corners of this island, is no mean feat

Morning Peeps .... Looks promising out there.  A day of garden pottering calls - bliss.  Loving that border Ggirl - you've been busy again.

Lily - wish I'd been good and raked acorns last autumn - might have been slightly less saplings if I had.

Loved West Acre - well worth a visit if you haven't been before.  Plus came home with a bootful of plants that are all thriving one year on

Great bday tree Panda - makes a striking feature. And lovely flowers LPilly - although hope they are wrong about the frost.

fabulous day at the zoo (i kid you not) - but now exhausted.  Lovely to see teenage girls SO enthusiastic about stuff (they seem to no longer care if its cool to get excited) - and so many tiny babies to see.   Baby meerkats are soooo cute.  Thats enough now, back to the gardening tomorrow

Hi Dove - i used to have problems logging in here with an iphone or ipad.  I found if you open the site using Safari rather than Google the problem goes away - no idea why it works, but you might want to give it a go

When should I plant Phlox

Posted: 23/08/2014 at 08:33

Woody - i think you could do either, but i would go for autumn planting.  My logic would be that these are not young fragile plants, but ones that are well acclimatised to the conditions of your garden (they've lived there a while) so they should settle in fine.  If they were young plants from a nursery, i might be tempted to mollycoddle until spring.
